Two fun facts about the number 27: The 27th president of the United States was William Howard Taft, a graduate of Yale University. Fact #2: In 27 days, his Alma Mater, among with all the other major universities of this prestigious region will be interpreted in the second installment of an avant-garde poetry series that celebrates the best universities in the country.
Last year, Volume 1 was called “A Thoroughly Unique Poetry Project” and an “Engaging Poetic Tour of the Midwest” with “A variety of delightfully unexpected poetic forms” by Kirkus Reviews. This year, we go to the Northeast to experience places like Yale University–the Alma Mater of names like William Howard Taft, and, of course, Rory Gilmore.
